  • Home-made all the way! I used to do instant every once in a while, but my husband won't eat them. lol. So it's the real ones or nothing now.

  • Home Made- I love to use gold red skinned potatoes, and I make smash with the skins on... oh, and lots of fresh herbs and garlic!

  • I like the favor of homemade way more than instant! (except I craved instant when I was first pregnant lol) If I make instant I have to add flavor to it, like lots of cheese or ranch.

  • Both, depending what I have available that day. To me they taste the same though I'm not big on mashed potatoes.

  • Most of the time I make them homemade but if I just don't have much time before I have to get dinner going and the kids feed I will make instant.

  • both depends on time. My kids like the Idaho 3 cheese instant mashed potatoes. If I am making a roast then I will definitely make homemade mashed potatoes.

  • Homemade 99% of the time. I only do instant if i have a busy day or something. I love my homemade mashed potatoes. I mix in a ton of butter, sour cream, basil, and garlic. It's sooo good!
